I held my second Fancy Folds class on the weekend and it was terrific!! Technically, I held the class twice, because what I learned from the first round of Fancy Folds is that a small class size is key – so I split the group of eight attendees into two groups of four, and held the same class on both Saturday and Sunday. Safe to say I am now super familiar with all these fancy fold cards!!
The Pop Up Slider card is one I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time. The stitched rectangle framelits make it really easy to do, using the partial die-cutting technique to create the flap on the front of the card that slides up to reveal the stamped sentiment underneath.
How gorgeous is the Pop Up Stage card? And yes, this magnificent creation folds flat to mail! This card comes together really quickly and is beautiful in person.
This is the Shutter Card, definitely a challenging card to create. It took a bit of experimenting to make it look the way I wanted it to. However, the amazing effect is well worth it!
And finally, the swing arm card. I first saw this card at a demonstrator meeting earlier this year. Again, it’s one that takes a bit of effort to create, but it’s worth it!
If you didn’t get a chance to attend the Fancy Folds class, don’t worry! You can purchase the written tutorials, complete with colour photos of each step, for $12. Or, you can purchase the tutorial package plus supplies – meaning, a pack of Designer Series Paper of your choosing, and co-ordinating cardstock, all cut, scored, and prepared for you – for $30. Just email me to make arrangements!
